The first day of winter is almost here. With the temperate weather we’ve been having, this might come as a surprise to Georgia residents. In fact, this will be the third winter in a row we’ve experienced a La Niña pattern which usually means drier and warmer weather.
Although our heating season is shorter compared to our neighbors to the north, you want your furnace to be in tip-top shape when you start relying on it regularly. How confident are you in your furnace’s ability to provide uninterrupted service throughout the upcoming months?
You should be able to depend on uninterrupted warmth from your heating system whenever you need it. Our technicians are always available for any heating repairs in Dublin, GA you may need. However, the ideal situation is to avoid furnace issues in the first place. Here’s how you can avoid repairs this season.
Schedule Furnace Maintenance
We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: maintenance is essential to a well-functioning HVAC system. Although it’s usually scheduled in the fall, your furnace will benefit from maintenance at any point in the heating season.
A well-maintained furnace is much less likely to need unexpected repairs that are always untimely and could prove to be costly. Look at it this way: it’s better to call for maintenance while your furnace is working than it is to call us for a repair when it’s not working at all.
Change the Filter on a Regular Basis
As a homeowner, this item should be on the list of things you can do to maintain your home. It’s easy to change your furnace’s filter and doing so is essential for a system that runs smoothly and efficiently.
A clogged and dirty filter restricts airflow into your furnace’s air handler. When this airflow is restricted, it places extra strain on the system and could cause it to overwork, overheat, and ultimately fail. We recommend a new filter before the heating season starts and then changing it every 1-3 months.
Don’t Ignore the Warning Signs
We know how easy it can be to ignore the warning signs that your furnace might need repairs, but doing so won’t make them go away. In fact, it’ll probably lead to a costlier repair that proves to be a bigger headache than scheduling a repair right now would be. Look at it this way: an early, easy repair that stops a future, expensive repair is the kind you shouldn’t mind getting.
Take Advantage of Sunny Days
If you have any rooms with windows that receive sunlight throughout the day, be sure to open the blinds and curtains to reap the benefits of radiant heat. Although our sunny winter days won’t be enough to keep your home entirely warm, they’ll add some extra warmth to the house. That’ll help your heating system out when it doesn’t need to run as often.
